As you say there are many ways of pronouncing 'Van Gogh'. Very nice observation. I have been posting on your blog of late and don't seem to be getting through? Hope this one does...

Thank you, Monika. How do you pronounce "Van Gogh?"

Overheard in a museum: "Manet, Monet, I've heard it both ways."
